Experienced Hong Kong Based Sex Therapist
Issues around sex and intimacy can affect people in many different ways. Issues around one’s own sexuality can be traumatic and can cause a deep sense of distress and instability for the person effected. Couples may also face problems within a relationship with mis-matched libidos, differing sexual preferences, and loss of sexual connection.
Coming to sex therapy to talk about problems concerning your own or your partner’s sexual preferences can be daunting, and for some cultures- positively embarrassing. When looking at problems concerning sexual identity there may also be very complex and deep-rooted psychological issues at play, and some of these may be traumatic or painful, so it is important that the sex therapist ensures that all concerns are approached in a professional, confidential and ethical manner. Working as a trained psycho-dynamic therapist Alison will help clients to unpack the issues within a relationship or an individual’s psyche, in a non-judgmental, positive and compassionate manner to help you to gain a better understanding of the root causes of the problem and to lead a healthier, happier life. As a specialist in interpersonal trauma, Alison is particularly skillful in managing issues that may have arisen from previous experiences.
